Mechatronics is basically a complex combination of mechanics, electronics, and informatics. However, a common feature that is recognized and is also the essence of mechatronics is the “combination of many fields to create new products with outstanding features”.
Currently, the industrial revolution 4.0 has changed the way people work and connect with each other, having a strong impact on the field of mechatronics. Along with the development of modern technology and machines, robots are constantly growing in number as well as their capabilities. Robots are increasingly intelligent, taking on to replace jobs that humans cannot do, such as entering radioactive zones, rescuing people in fires… Future generations are coming to accept robots in household tasks such as house keeping, house cleaning, health monitoring… Each robot has a central processing unit (brain) (today also integrated with artificial intelligence), actuating mechanisms (hands to hold, wheels to move…), and other components. The sensing unit (sensor) records the stimulus to send to the central processing unit. Robot is a product of mechatronics profession.
